8 best things Arizona Wildcats said after beating Oregon State

From the get-go, Arizona's defense looked night-and-day compared to the first half, but what really got the Cats over the hump was a steal caused by a halfcourt trap with Allonzo Trier and Parker Jackson-Cartwright, which led to a loose ball and Trier throwing down a dunk over OSU's Ethan Thompson.

The Beavers are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 versus the Pac-12 and 0-4 ATS in their last four games following a straight-up win.

Washington overcame a sloppy and unattractive first half filled with fouls and turnovers to pull away from California over the final 15 minutes.

Expect the Wildcats to play hard against OR (11-5, 1-2), which has lost two of three Pac-12 games after a strong nonconference run.

Pritchard made four of Oregon's eight 3-pointers, and Brown made three. Sophomore Mikayla Pivec has handled much of the point guard duties, and she hadn't played the position since the seventh grade.

How did OR get it done? The Ducks continued to focus on things they could control, namely efficient rebounding and crisp passing. Miller, Alkins and Trier spoke in the postgame press conference after the game, watch what they had to say.

"You think of teams like Washington State and Oregon State".

OR had a 38-31 rebounding advantage and grabbed 15 offensive rebounds to Arizona State's eight.

Last season, the Oregon Ducks lost five games entering the NCAA Tournament. Junior Reid Travis averages over 20 per game and just over seven rebounds to pace the Cardinal.

Oregon State went toe-to-toe with No. 17 Arizona before a late run propelled the Wildcats to a 62-53 win on Thursday night at the McKale Center. Other 2018 opponents for the Beavers who will open the season ranked include No. 10 Stanford (at home May 11-13), No. 16 UCLA (at home May 24-26) and No. 19 Cal State Fullerton (at home March 9-11).

The Sun Devils don't have an answer physically for players like McIntosh, who kept OR in a game that it, quite frankly, didn't deserve to be in with some of its sloppy plays early on. "It was choppy. We never really got into a great rhythm on offense".
